hello,

I have just installed the program xvidcap, but I don't understand the program. If I press record(red ball) the program is closed down. What can I do?

Thanks

i have found xvidcap to be buggy. install gtk-recordmydesktop, that has worked for me

Should that not work, there is always "Istanbul" and "Wink".

However, Wink will only save as .exe or .swf.

That might be a problem.

gtk-recordmydesktop saves as .ogg.

Since you can't upload that to most video sites, I suggest you open up firefox and search for "winff" to convert it to .avi or something.
